Global Marketing Manager & Creative Strategist for NAVER

I am a passionate individual with extensive experience in global marketing, creative advertising, and brand storytelling.

Currently based in South Korea

I am currently working as a Global Marketing Manager & Creative Strategist for NAVER to market the group communication app ‘BAND’ in the United States. I am deeply involved in planning strategic marketing campaigns and have directed over 60+ ad creatives and content in the process. In the last three years, BAND's MAU has seen a growth of over 1,100%, doubling year-over-year, and has gained popularity in school-related groups such as - high school sports teams, marching bands, and cheerleading teams. 

My previous works include two startups, that involved working in multiple disciplines ranging from product design, project management, marketing strategy, to brand direction. I love to think from the user's perspective and to design experiences in products, apps, and creative advertisements.
